8:19pm
warming trend nearly 70 degrees by thursday >> the manhunt continues for a former cop. who is accused of targeting other los angeles officers. in his manifesto. the suspect, you see here declares war on what he calls a quote -- "corrupt" police department. c-n-n's anderson cooper examines the past of christopher dorner and his termination from the l-a-p- d. (gushots) >> reporter: the subject of christopher dorner's rage goes back to an incident in july of 2007. dorner was out on patrol with a female officer, a veteran of the force, when they were dispatched to check out a report of a mentally unstable man named christopher gettler. gettler was refusing to leave the grounds of a hotel, and after a struggle, dorner and his partner subdued him. then, dorner says his partner unnecessarily kicked gettler twice in the chest and once in the face while he was being cuffed.
8:20pm
in the manifesto, dorner writes "the kick to the face left a visible injury on the left cheek below the eye. unfortunately, after reporting it to supervisors and investigated.nothing was done. i had broken their supposed "blue line." the blue line: an unspoken code of conduct among police that states you never rat out a fellow officer. the lapd did launch an internal investigation into dorner's complaint but found, "the alleged kicks had not occurred." dorner writes "the department stated that i had lied and made up the report." dorner was charged with making false statements, and the lapd board of rights found him guilty. but according to dorner, this was a result of corruption and retaliation on the part of the lapd. "terminating me for telling the truth of a caucasian officer kicking a mentally ill man is disgusting," dorner writes. "with the discovery and evidence available, you will see the truth." the evidence dorner points to is the testimony of gettler himself. court documents show he told the lapd he was kicked by a
8:21pm
female police officer. gettler's father also testified that his son told him about the attack. nbc4 los angeles spoke exclusively with gettler's father, who says he remembers that night in 2007 when his son came home and told him he was kicked. >> "two in the chest, the third one missed and got him in the face." "this is my last resort" dorner writes, "the lapd has suppressed the truth and it has now lead to deadly consequences." but did the lapd really suppress the truth? court documents show the testimony of both gettler and his father was heard by the board of rights, who say, quote "while the board acknowledged. that the testimony of gettler and his father indicated a kicking had occurred, gettler is schizophrenic. the board did not find him to be a reliable witness and found his father's testimony was hearsay." the board also found that the officer he accused of abuse was considering giving dorner a negative review and that he falsely alleged the kicks in order to stop working with her.
8:22pm
dorner challenged his firing in the court of appeals but lost. but this incident is not dorner's only problem with the lapd. he also accuses officers of rampant racism, saying they use racial slurs on the job. he writes, quote, "the department has not changed since the rampart and rodney king days. it has gotten worse." in his manifesto, he promises, "terminating officers because they expose a culture of lying, racism, and excessive use of force will immediately change. the blue line will forever be severed, and a cultural change will be implanted. you have awoken a sleeping giant." dorner promises violent retaliation against the lapd until his name is cleared, and whether or not his claims are true, police say he is already delivering on that promise.
